NASA releases classic software to public domain

Author: JT Smith

From Newsbytes: "NASA turned 43 this month and marked the occasion by releasing more than 200 of its
scientific and engineering applications for public use. The modular Fortran programs can be modified, compiled and run on most
Linux platforms.

The Robert C. Byrd National Technology Transfer Center in Wheeling, W.Va., and the Open Channel Foundation, a nonprofit unit
of Open Channel Software Inc. of Chicago, are publishing the NASA Classics collection."
